How not to use the mind while on the path to a Spiritual Awakening | Gurdjieff and Krishnamurti


- Identification with our thoughts, feelings, and sensations is the main obstacle to self-remembering. Self-observation and a degree of self-knowledge are determined by the creation of a stable state of self-remembering.
- Enlightenment is not in the hands of time. The mind thinks it's a gradual process and it takes time to free the mind from conditioning.

1. George Ivanovich Gurdjieff (13 January 1866 – 29 October 1949), usually called Gurdjieff, was a philosopher, mystic, spiritual teacher, and composer of Armenian and Greek descent. He was an influential spiritual teacher of the first half of the 20th century. He was influenced by Sufi, Zen and Yoga mystics he met on his early travels. According to Gurdjieff, the majority of people spend their entire lives in a hypnotic "waking sleep" state. He created a way for obtaining a higher state of awareness and realizing one's full potential. He referred to this as "The Method" or "The Work". According to him, the teachings he brought to the West were inspired by his personal encounters and early travels. The teachings embodied the truth that existed in early religions. They were wisdom teachings relating to self-awareness in people's daily lives, and humanity's place in the universe.
2. Krishnamurti is regarded globally as one of the greatest thinkers and religious teachers of all time. Jiddu Krishnamurti (11 May 1895 – 17 February 1986) was a philosopher, speaker and writer. In his early life, he was groomed to be the new World Teacher, an advanced spiritual position in the theosophical tradition, but later rejected this mantle and withdrew from the organization behind it. Krishnamurti was born in South India, in what is now the modern-day Madanapalle of Andhra Pradesh. Globally, Krishnamurti is regarded as one of history's greatest thinkers and spiritual leaders. Instead of elaborating on any philosophy or religion, he spoke about issues that affect all of us in our daily lives, such as the challenges of surviving in a violent and corrupt modern society, the need for humanity to be liberated from its inner burdens of fear, anger, hurt, and sorrow, and the difficulties that come with living in such a society. He pointed out the necessity of bringing a profoundly meditative and spiritual character to our daily lives and elucidated the complex workings of the human mind with amazing accuracy. Krishnamurti did not belong to any religion group, sect, or nation, nor did he follow any particular political or ideological thought.
